Missing breadcrumbs am I right

When I click on the address bar at the top of Windows Explorer I get a blank dropdown menu. I'm wondering if this is correct. In XP the dropdown would enable me to go back.I think I attached a screen shot of what I'm talking about.

When I click on the address bar I get

copy address
delete address
delete history

When you are at the screen you want to make a screen shot, try typing snipping tool in search and use that. It should work.

If the above fails, try this:

At the top[ of your post screen you will see a paper cliip, which can be used to attach the screen shot.

We were both typing at the same time. My answer is as though you did not answer, as I did not see it until I posted.

That's what it's posed to be like.. unless you type in the address box it's only empty if you clean history/right click delete history.
